89 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2009

($21) Good bright, dark red. Expressive aromas of fresh berries, smoked meat, flint and woodsmoke. Supple on entry, then fresh and pliant in the middle palate, offering strong, mouthfilling flavors of smoky berries and spices. A medium-to-full-bodied wine that really dusts the palate on the broad, long, sweetly tannic finish. Classic pinotage-a nice compromise of old style and new wave.

I will purchase a case or two!

Pinotage

Pinotage is a recent addition to the wine world, having been created in South Africa in 1925, by Stellenbosch University Professor A.I Perold. Perold crossed the Pinot Noir and Cinsaut grapes with the aim of acquiring the best qualities of both parents: classic Pinot Noir flavors with a bountiful crop from sturdy, disease resistant vines. Initially, Pinotage failed to meet this promise, and...
